Subject: Excellent aud
This is the go to upload of this phenomenal show. Takes me there.
Reviewer: lilrichwhiteboy - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - May 15, 2013
Subject: Fabulous Show. Fabulous FOB*.
I concure that this is probably the best Aud we'll ever get of this show. But I give the Wise version a lot more credit for quality. It is also a very good recording. But this one has Jerry's vocals a little more up front, which is nice.

*Update from December, 2007 review. Wow! Nice job Mark. You sure fooled me. Excellent recording with excellent equipment. I didn't think anything could ever sound that good recording from behind the board. I always have a lot of respect for folks who can do more with less.

Subject: This is not an FOB!
Microphones were very high up on tripod (fifteen feet or so) a few rows behind the soundboard, to the far left side of the floor (facing the stage).

I used two Nakamichi CM-700's with CP-703 Shotgun Capsules > Sony TC-D5M (Dolby B), which must have been aimed just right as I was pretty

Subject: Great show; very good recording
I think this is as good a recording, barring a vault release, that we'll get from this fine show. The entire pre-drums is fantastic, esp. Comes A Time. Great Lazy>Supplication in first set, too.
Every version I've heard of this show has a cricket (so it sounds) chirping intermittently throughout and unfortunately this is no exception. However, this is far superior to any other recording I've heard, and I'm thankful that it has come here!
